Health Benefits of Fermented Vegetables and Demonstration How to Make

Posted in Food / Health on April 25, 2016

Naturopathic health treatments often focus on making sure our digestive tract health is optimum, not only for our digestive functions, but because it also affects our moods and immune system. One easy way to help increase the health of your GIT is to included fermented foods in your diet. Fermented foods are rich in live bacteria that replenish the micro biome, helping it maintain the right proportion of friendly bacteria for optimal health, examples include sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha and kefir.
They also can increases micronutrients as some bacteria can increase levels of vitamins in food, especially B vitamins, as well as making the food more digestible as many microbes produce enzymes that break down cellulose in plant foods.

I chatted to my friends from Raw Sisterhood, who supply many of Sydney’s shops and cafes with fermented and raw foods. They also run workshops. Watch the video below to hear their wealth of knowledge on the subject and show us how easy it is to make our own fermented vegetables at home.

  1. Hi I was just wondering was anything else used in with the cabbage and fennel before it gets placed in the jar? I’m new to fermented foods and desperate to give this recipe a try but I couldn’t quite make out if there was anything else done to the cabbage. Thank you so much for an awesome video and the amazing knowledge.
